Curse of the lottery: Tragic stories of big jackpot winners
It makes us wonder if luck is really “lucky” after all. The money isn’t earned and often the winner doesn’t understand finances. That is one of the reasons they bought the ticket to begin with. They thought that luck would bring them what they didn’t have the confidence in themselves to earn.
Being blessed feels like peace and satisfaction that comes from within. It has more to do with talents and abilities, gifts that are special or brilliant. These are not necessarily earned but they can be cultivated. Lots of people are blessed with talents and just let them go to waste. But those who embrace and develop their blessings find the highest fulfillment, for they are the ones who have given so much to others.
